Dr. Robert J. Winn is a board-certified physician specializing in family medicine. Dr. Winn firmly believes that every person should be able to seek care regardless of their financial circumstances; too often, he has found that those who need medical help the most are often unable to afford needed treatment. Acutely aware of the gaps in the healthcare system, Robert strives to reach out to commonly shunned populations such as those afflicted by drug addictions, and help them work towards long-term health goals. His convictions have inspired him to become a community activist and dedicate his career to ensuring that those with limited resources have access to quality medical care. Robert J. Winn is currently licensed to practice medicine in the state of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Winn attributes his drive to help patients to a lifelong devotion to community involvement and his educational background in psychology. Even as an undergraduate, Robert J.

However, Dr. Winn ultimately decided following his graduation in 1994 that he wanted to set a career path broader than the one psychology alone could offer.
